Good tracks lead to fine summit.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  18 Apr 2022
The most straightforward approach is to park at C319 432 starA (there is also more parking at the religious grotto 100m up the road) and proceed up the substantial track. This winds its way as far as C317 429 starB where it diminishes, but continues as a much narrower, occasionally muddy trail for about another 800m, leading all the way to the summit, which is marked by a large cairn. About 45 minutes car to cairn. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/835/comment/5594/
